Over the past seven years Thompson Pump has been finding ways to focus on the health and wellbeing of its employees, and it improves and adds activities each year. In 2020, Thompson Pump’s wellness committee – a team of cross-functional members who rotate annually – looked for ways to engage the employees during the pandemic. This included hosting activities and challenges that could be done from home, such as a having everyone watch a video series with topics about physical and mental health, and healthy cooking; having people participate in walking challenges; holding virtual activities such as yoga, stretching and mindfulness classes; and sharing monthly newsletters from Cigna to help inform employees of ways to practice self-care. The team also had all employees submit their favorite healthy recipes. Those recipes were compiled into a cookbook, which was given to everyone as part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebration.
“The health and wellbeing of everyone who works here is of the utmost importance,” said Chris Thompson, President of Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company. “We couldn’t do what we do without our team and we want each and every person to be and feel the best they can.”
